Generation Next Communication, the official distributor of Apple products in Nepal has gone on to officially unveil the new iPhone 8 and 8 Plus in Nepal. Though both of these iPhones have got a rotten design, the power inside these two phones shouldn’t be taken for granted. The iPhone 8 and 8 Plus are now available for purchase in Nepal through retailers, while users can also get free 2GB of data for 8months if you purchase it through Ncell.
iPhone 8 Plus
Despite featuring a boring design(minus the glass back), the iPhone 8 Plus is one heck of a powerhouse. The phone still comes with a 5.5-inch 1080p LCD display, though, the hidden gem of this phone tends to be its A11 Bionic hexa-core chipset and M11 motion coprocessor. The phone finally supports Qi wireless charging, thanks to Apple for opting in for a glass back.
Optics wise, there’s a dual-camera setup at the back. Despite featuring a similar number to last year’s iPhone, the 8 Plus do come with improvements, all thanks to Apple’s A11 Bionic chipset. The chipset works wonder to empower the 12MP sensor for faster low light focusing, a refined sharpness, and dynamic range. Those sensors are also capable of capturing 4k @60fps; the first of its kind in a smartphone, whilst it’s also capable of capturing 1080p videos at 240fps.
Out of those dual sensors, the first one comes with a f/1.8 aperture, whereas the latter one features f/2.8 aperture. As for the pricing, the 64GB of iPhone 8 Plus will cost you Rs. 119,500, whereas the 128GB variant will go on sale for Rs. 133,000.
The iPhone 8 is a toned down version of iPhone 8 Plus. The handset boasts a 4.7-inch 720p display, while the Cupertino based company has axed the dual-sensor; there’s only a single 12MP camera at the back, though, it’s more than capable of capturing best images. The 64GB variant of the phone will be available for Rs. 98,500, whereas the 128GB will sell for Rs. 112,500.
